Artist's Description

Viola odorata is a species of the genus Viola native to Europe and Asia, but has also been introduced to North America. It is commonly known as Sweet Violet, English Violet, Common Violet, or Garden Violet. The sweet-scented Violet appears at the end of February and has usually finished blooming by the end of April. Easy to spot, the familiar leaves are heart-shaped, slightly downy, especially beneath, on stalks rising alternately from a creeping rhizome or underground stem. The flower-stalks arise from the axils of the leaves and bear single flowers, with a pair of scaly bracts placed a little above the middle of the stalk.

The flowers are most often a beautiful deep purple, giving their name to the colour that is called after them, but you can find others in the color of lilac, pale rose-coloured or white variations (like the one shown here).Many times you can find all of these various tints growing on the same bank.

Taken along Pine Ridge, Earth Magic, Macon County, NC.
